What is the average age of a nerfer. I know that now we all have to be older than 10 or 13 around there, anyway I'm old enough. I was just wondering what the average age of a nerfer was. I tried to search for old posts under "age", It told me to broaden my search, I'm not really sure how to broaden "age" so I'm making a new one.

I'm not sure the 30-40 choice was necessary, it could have just been 30+, but whatever.

In previous polls dealing with age, the majority has been around 13-15 and it looks like the NIC average is still about the same. I'm 14.

Because your fragile ego can't handle being involved in something that your dad might do?

Nah, my dad tinkers with real guns. Even if he were to play with Nerf guns, I wouldn't be embarrassed.

FYI, I'm 19, soon to turn 20 next month. (Only one more year to go! WOOT!)

Or perhaps, even own you?

<g>

I think more dads should get off the sofa, computer, etc., get outside and get some fresh air and exercise...and if it's with their kids doing something that they love, hey, more power to ya.

Plus, my son's Stefans look horrible; he needs dad to make 'em straight.

EDIT; No, I'm not 40 plus; not that far off, but not yet, thank God...

My dad takes no intrest in nerf, he could care less. The only thing he would like me to do would be to shoot the stupid squirrels that eat everything in our yard. I've tried shooting them with little luck, they run too fast, and I dont have the patience to stand still for half an hour. Then wait 'till they come closer then, BAM!

You can get some dried corn on the cob to lure the squirrels to a good location and then blast them away. This works very well.

There's been a major dropoff in the 17-20 and 21-30 categories since last time. Maybe they got tired of responding to polls about their age.

Not exactly. I meant that like if a 40+ year old did not have a child or somthing he would have chances of trying to get his hands on little children. *If you know what I mean* :rolleyes:

Actually, some of us were speculating about something like that with certain people in the Super Soaker community recently in this thread:

http://nerfhaven.com...?showtopic=2047

Edit: Speaking of Commander Bob, It seems that his site may have been taken down recently. That may explain something.............

Update: As of 5/7, I found that the site is now back up again. Weird.

Im 14 going on 15 on may 21. (owe ya!) It would be weird nerfing with my dad for one thing my dad doesn't sit on the sofa all day or on the computer, he is other doing work or cleaning. So to even get time with him to do that would be hard. Also i don't think my friends and eye would be able to act like are selves we would be like cussing cause we just got shot right in the eye or something and then bam you look over and see my dad it would just be weird i think.

I'm a little confused now. What did you just say? I don't want to be a jerk, so I'm going to ask you nicely: Please learn how to spell and talk properly. I got lost after you stated your age.

Not a problem, we understand that. We just want to be able to understand what people are talking about. Take your time when writing up a post. There's no rush.

I know a bunch of 40+ paintballers, so I wouldn't doubt many dads shoot nerf blasters at their kids. Mine did when I was young.

And tanner_07, the edit button is in the top-right corner of your post, right next to "Quote."
